“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read selection” is:
Publication Date: December 6
Second in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices sequence, this picks up where Clockwork Angel left off. Young adult urban fantasy can start to seem repetitive after a while, but Cassandra Clare (a Massachusetts resident, BTW) is the leader of the current pack in creating smart, strong characters and casually blending breezy humor with tense action scenes. Infernal Devices is a prequel to The Mortal Instruments, set in Victorian London, and adds an element of steampunk to the mix.
If you start with City of Bones now, you can read the four books that come before Clockwork Prince and be all caught up by December 6th.
